Royal Canin Extra small dry- Puppy kibble

Our pups have been raised on Royal Canin. When they go home, they will need about 1 cup per day, divided into 3-4 meals.

Food schedules help with potty training.


First of all, understand that crate training is not cruel. In spite of what some people may have told you, breeders and veterinarians recommend using a crate for your dog from a young age.

For thousands of years, dogs in the wild have sought out small “dens,” where they can feel safe and sheltered while resting, caring for puppies, or recovering from an injury or illness. Giving your puppy his own personal bedroom can help them feel more secure.

This method is also extremely effective for house training while you're not keeping a hawk eye on them—dogs won’t want to soil their bed, but will have little issue with sneaking into another room of the house to go if they’re not yet fully trained.

Finally, crate training can help prevent anxiety. For puppies, overseeing a big house when no one is with them can be overwhelming. When they feel like they have a smaller place they need to “protect,” it’s much more manageable.

We prefer to order through for fair prices of the brands preferred. For our in house "cage style" crate, we like the Midwest wire cage 24" length. For the Travel Crate (you have been provided) We prefer the 24" size.

Potty training suppiles vary per your likes, and dislikes. We use washable pads, and grass turf for potty training.

It depends on time of year, and age of puppy. We always wrap a playpen around the Wire cage "Crate" to make a space for Sleep, play, eat, and potty.




 Havanese require a good brush! This one is very low priced, and works!

 We love the Biosilk line for Dogs. Affordable, and effective!
